Morihei Ueshiba est le fondateur de l’aïkido. En adaptant les techniques de combat ancestrales japonaises, il a contribué, avec Jigorō Kanō et Gichin Funakoshi, à la conservation de ce savoir menacé d’oubli par la modernisation de la société japonaise.

Après avoir contribué à la militarisation des esprits dans les années 1930 en développant l’aïkibudo dans les écoles militaires et divers lieux de pouvoir ,,,, sa quête personnelle ainsi que le traumatisme lié à la défaite japonaise de 1945 l’amenèrent à modifier son approche martiale en « voie de l’harmonie », rejetant toute idée de compétition suivant en cela les paroles de l’empereur Hirohito lors de son allocution en 1945 : « Nous avons résolu d’ouvrir la voie à une ère de paix grandiose pour toutes les générations à venir ». Ainsi, l’aïkido fut le premier art martial à être de nouveau autorisé par les autorités américaines d’occupation dès 1948,.

„The real Way of a Warrior is to prevent such slaughter — it is the Art of Peace, the power of love.“

—  Morihei Ueshiba
Context: The Way of the Warrior has been misunderstood. It is not a means to kill and destroy others. Those who seek to compete and better one another are making a terrible mistake. To smash, injure, or destroy is the worst thing a human being can do. The real Way of a Warrior is to prevent such slaughter — it is the Art of Peace, the power of love. Speaking of a vision of the "Great Spirit of Peace" in 1942, during World War II, as quoted in Adjusting Though Reflex : Romancing Zen (2010) by Rodger Hyodo, p. 76

„The Way of a Warrior is to establish harmony.“

Vanquish your foes by always keeping yourself in a safe and unassailable position; then no one will suffer any losses. The Way of a Warrior, the Art of Politics, is to stop trouble before it starts. It consists in defeating your adversaries spiritually by making them realize the folly of their actions. The Way of a Warrior is to establish harmony.

„True Budo is to accept the spirit of the universe, keep the peace of the world, correctly produce, protect and cultivate all beings in nature.“

—  Morihei Ueshiba
Context: I felt the universe suddenly quake, and that a golden spirit sprang up from the ground, veiled my body, and changed my body into a golden one. At the same time my body became light. I was able to understand the whispering of the birds, and was clearly aware of the mind of God, the creator of the universe. At that moment I was enlightened: the source of Budo is God's love — the spirit of loving protection for all beings … Budo is not the felling of an opponent by force; nor is it a tool to lead the world to destruction with arms. True Budo is to accept the spirit of the universe, keep the peace of the world, correctly produce, protect and cultivate all beings in nature. An account of an experience of transcendent awareness, soon after a contest where, unarmed, he defeated a naval officer armed with a bokken (wooden sword) without harming him; as quoted in Aikido (1985) by Kisshomaru Ueshiba <!-- Hozansha Publications, Tokyo -->
